Eligibility:

The Hopper Prize is offering multiple individual artist grants totaling $5,000 USD awarded through an open call art competition juried by leading contemporary curators.

The Hopper Prize was established in order to increase the recognition of artwork created by artists and photographers. Our aim is to advance artists' careers by providing them with unrestricted financial support that is coupled with a platform for increased visibility. We accept submissions twice a year via an open call.

We are currently accepting submissions for the Spring 2020 grant cycle.

 

Program Highlights

Total Awards: $5,000.00 USD for visual artists

  • 5 artists will each receive $1,000.00 USD in unrestricted grant awards
  • 30 artists will have their work archived at hopperprize.org
  • Selected submissions will be featured on our Instagram feed @hopperprize
  • Additional exposure will be available to winners through our Journal: Insights into Contemporary Art

 

Connect with Curators

We collaborate with contemporary curators holding prominent positions at major institutions in order to select our grant winners. Our open call provides you with a direct path to get your work in front of these forward thinking exhibition makers. Jurors for the Spring 2020 awards are:

 

Amber Esseiva

Associate Curator

Institute for Contemporary Art VCU

&

Leila Groth

Associate Curator for Contemporary Art

Baltimore Museum of Art

 

Our jurors will be selecting 5 artists from our open call who will each receive $1,000. The jurors will also select a shortlist of 30 artists who will have their work archived at hopperprize.org.

Grant awards are unrestricted and may be used any way the recipients choose.

Additionally, when submitting, you will have the option to opt-in to be considered for possible Instagram features on our feed @hopperprize, where we currently reach an audience of over 33K. Our editors will be featuring select submissions on a rolling basis prior to the application deadline.

In addition to grant awards, our shortlist, and Instagram reach, we will be providing an additional platform for exposure via our online Journal Insights Into Contemporary Art. We launched this digital publication to give artists a new channel to amplify their voice while providing an in-depth look at their work, practice, and background. Grant recipients and shortlisted artists will all receive the opportunity to publish an interview to include any work of their choosing as a means of providing continued support beyond the open call.
